“Comfortable stay in a nice area of New York”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2010

We stayed at Storm King Lodge as part of a 3 day motorcycle tour. We wanted to visit Storm King Art Center. The location of the lodge is very convenient to the Art Center.

Hal really cares about his guests. He made us feel at home right away, giving us a tour of the property and discussing the history of the place.

The guest room we stayed in was in the upper level of a converted barn. The common area for guests is on the lower level. Plenty of room to spread out if you're there with a larger group. There is a large covered porch facing east which is a nice place to spend time.

For dinner, there are many options within a short drive in Cornwall-on-Hudson and across the river in Beacon.

Hal offers a full breakfast that was quite good. We had a frittata with asparagus on the morning of our departure.

We rented the entire property for our daughter's wedding at West Point in September 2008. Hal and Gay Janks, the owners, are incredible! I shipped tons of big boxes up ahead, we hung tiny white lights around the veranda (which by the way, has a breathtaking view), had dinner and music by candlelight the first night and enjoyed our coffee sitting out in the cool morning breezes before a delicious breakfast served by the innkeepers. The bride and bridesmaids stayed in the cottage which sports a full kitchen and pool. You will not be disappointed in any way!

Found this B&B at the last minute and have nothing bad to say. Owners are friendly and helpful to make the most of your visit to the Hudson Valley. Breakfast both mornings was amazing!

My sister and I stayed two nights at the lodge and would stay there again without hesitation. It happened that Hal had brought Gay home from the hospital a day or so before our arrival, so he had many, many things on his mind, but he was completely charming and engaging as a host. The room (downstairs, with twin beds) was comfortable and bright; the lodge itself is spacious and welcoming; the setting is beautiful. Sitting on the verandah in the evening with a glass of wine and looking across to the Storm King Art Center as the stars came out was another lovely part of our stay. Go!

Food was great, peaceful, scenery delightful. Barn swallows amusing, very close to Storm King and West Point. Plenty to do on a weekend. Owner is a great story teller.

Very nice and friendly inkeeper almost made up for a total absence of room service. We stayed 5 nights and no ever emptied our trash or so much as asked if we might need a fresh towel or two. The windows didn't shut properly, but that's okay since it is a very old structure. It would probably have been okay for one night. However, the room was not that comfortable for a multi-night stay. Small things like a missing side table at one side of the bed really make a difference to those of us who like to read in bed on vacation. The bathroom was so small that we had to take turns using it, which is fine, but add to that no fresh towels and unemptied trash and it ended up being more like summer camp than a pampering experience. The breakfasts were fine. Hal, the inkeeper, was really likeable and friendly, but we were perplexed by this place.

Well, the most negative thing is that it's out in the middle of nowhere. Nothing within walking distance of anything. My girlfriend and I were looking at last minute for a nice romantic getaway retreat on Valentines day (yeah I know - we shouldn't have waited till the last minute). . I would have to say, that depending on what you're looking for, that this B&B isn't probably the best romantic retreat, unless you're into hunting. , No breakfast served to you in bed, No four-corner canpopy beds (at least not in our room) and it's far away from any kind of picturesque town center - it's tucked a way a few streets down in a very rural neighbohood setting.

Our particular room did have a private fireplace, but the room was overall tired looking and our door opened up right into the main lobby / living room.

Our hostess however, was very gracious and had the talent of helping out when needed but also staying out of the when not needed and trusting the guests not to steal stuff! . And that's what you want in a B&B. And that's probably the positive thing that I want to stress - that the the hostess gives trust and freedom to the guests, while at the same time serving as a great host.

I think that with B&B''s - it all depends what you're looking for.
If you're a business traveler, WP cadet, or hunter looking for a place to stay that's not a Holiday-Inn type hotel, then check it out - I don't remember what we paid but I imagine that a day other than valentine's day the price would probably be competetive with a chain hotel.

I have to say that I wouldn't really recommend it as a romantic getaway however, Like a lot of old B&B's, our room had a kind of tired look, keeping in mind they may have had other rooms that would have been better - we don't know. I've had better luck in Cold Spring, for example, but then again you will spend more money there.

But on the positive side, it was your typical b&b experience - if you care to socialize with your neighbors around the fireplace or at breakfast, you might meet some great new friends.. And if i you're traveling on business or just staying in a hotel to visit a friend or relative, the definitely check it out! Hey, why stay in a bland brand-name hotel when you could rise and shine to a cozy custom-made breakfast in a nice cozy, nicely decorated living room and a roaring fire (well we can skip the fire in the summertime!!)

Possibly in the summertime there are better views. I mostly got the impression that that this is primarily a haven for hunters., and for West Point cadets on leave.

Not bad over all, just keep in mind that it's not in a "resort" area, so there's no restaurants or sight-seeing within walkin distance. It's really out in the woods.

Very gratious host-ess though, as I said. The breakfast she laid out was excellent,
and in general, the place is the typical casual b&b style. We had some nice conversations in the living room / lobby both around the huge fireplace in the evening, and also at breakfast in the morning.

So, privacy? Not so much. More of communal b&b type of place - but again we had a room on the first floor opening directly into to living/dining room...
